Chandler Klebs, George Ortega, Mitch J, Michael Walsh, David Joseph, and new cohost Daniel Miessler discuss new projects they have in mind to help educate people on why we don't have free will and why it's important.
For some time, the cohosts have been suspecting that the obesity topic may be a good theme to connect the free will belief to. Can our knowledge of determinism actually help people lose weight?
Chandler offers a comparison between three different obesity worldviews.
1. Free Weight: If you're fat, it's your fault because you could have weighed otherwise. 2. FATalism: You were predetermined to be fat by the gods and no amount of diet or exercise can change it. 3. Dieterminism: What you have eaten in your life was do to prior causes over which you had no control. You are not responsible for your fatness, but may be caused to change as new information comes your way to allow you to act on your desire to lose weight.
